Govinda’s is a real local Tucson gem serving delicious vegan meals. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. The outside grounds are beautiful. There are vegan entrees and sides that are wonderfully prepared and seasoned. It also has an interesting gift shop.

Wonderful outdoor seating with water feature, tables with umbrellas and live music which isn't overpowering. Delicious healthy food, amazing cashew salad dressing...crumb cake... Yogurt with fresh fruit and scrambled egg mix. Love this place and the koi pond in the back of building.
